||Overview: Ever seem like the Web is just one big screaming match? Ever feel like you're refereeing a worldwide tantrum on YOUR social media sites, blogs, and online forums? That's not good for your goals - or your sanity. Stop. Now. Step back. Take a breath. And solve the problem. Thought you couldn't? You can: there are proven best practices for getting people to be civil online. Even when they disagree. Even if they're complaining. You can avoid misunderstandings that lead to flame wars, and promote constructive conversation amongst those with strongly held views. And, finally, you can handle the people that just can't be civilized. Today, these skills are flat-out imperative. Everyone who leads, curates, manages, or participates in online communities needs them. Andrea Weckerle hasn't just compiled them: she's created a 30-Day Action Plan for restoring civility to your corner of the digital world. This plan works - and not one moment too soon.
